My Brandings

From: Greg K. As a startlingly tenatious misanthrope [one would hope to get over the annoyance prompted by social interaction but, as I say, tenatious] I have never been able to deal with the trust associatied with tattooing; "They have never slipped before so I WILL be the first". This mistrust has prompted many a session spent pooring over TATTOO magazine trying to figure a way to do bodyart to myself, by myself. Let me tell you, MIRRORS DONT WORK WELL FOR THIS. Via this path I came to branding; I can design it, plan it and DO it myself! ... read more

Heidi's Tragus story

di's Tragus story The following is taken verbatim from my co-op's house journal (except for anything in italics). The story was written to be read by my 12 housemates, who were for the most part unfamiliar with bodypiercing at all. I planned for the tale to be unclear as to it's subject until the very end. Try reading it from the perspective of someone who has never heard of piercing before. This was my very first pierce, so I wasn't all that familiar with it myself before I went. My tale of Monday, Jan 2nd (1995) Okay, I showed up ... read more

madison piercing.

ison piercing. Here is my personal experience with a madison piercing. My partner and I were planning on going into The Gates of Hell, in Troy, NY, to get a new barbell for her tongue- she had had it pierced there by Jeff, and was ready to have it downsized. I wasn't planning on having anything done at the time, but I was considering buying a curved barbell to replace the captive bead ring in my navel once it heals completely, so I went along. Jeff had done two piercings for me before- a cartilage pierce and a rook. We ... read more

Australian navel piercing experience

tralian navel piercing experience For around ten months I had been fascinated with bodyarts and especially piercing. I've found it quite sensual to the point of being erotic, and had wanted to get my navel pierced for almost as long! So in the last few weeks I'd researched via the 'net about hygeine, aftercare etc, learning to understand the procedures and what to expect. But today I finally gained the courage to go to the piercing studio and "just look" at the jewellery, maybe talk to the piercer. Strangely (!) after 4 minutes staring at the glass showcase I'd chosen ... read more

Stretching Your Lobes

Your Lobes Stretching Your Lobes This is just my advice - it's far from gospel truth :) Lobe stretching has been popular in nearly every tribal culture historically, and seems to be picking up in popularity in our anti- bodmod culture. It is very easy to do... (BTW This information pretty much applies to any fleshy tissue stretching.) GETTING STARTED You will need a fully healed, well placed piercing. By well placed I mean that it should be high up enough on the lobe that when stretched the bottom skin won't be thinner than the sides - this can cause ... read more

The Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition

Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition The Shifting Urban Body: In the Culture of Recognition. Copyright &copy 1995 Mike McCabe On their voyages across the surface of the earth, 15th and 16th century maritime explorers referred to the unknown regions of the globe as Terra-Incognita or uncharted territory. They roamed the surface of the world blindly, unaware of the significance of its contour. Without the luxury of a map, early explorers had no meaningful framework that could orient them in their travels, there was no top or bottom to anything. There was nothing but the stars to help ... read more
